  Purpose

During colonoscopy, the colonoscopist employs various maneuvers, including changing the patient's posture to left-lateral decubitus or supine, to achieve complete colonoscopic examination. Posture change has also been reported to increase the success rate of ileal intubation. However, there has been no randomized trial which has shown that a particular posture of the patient increases the success rate of ileoscopy. The present study will be carried out to determine the impact of the patient's posture (left lateral vs supine position) on success rate of ileal intubation.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ileal intubation achieved or not [ Time Frame: After confirmation of cecal intubation for no more than 6 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    After confirmation of cecal intubation, patient will undergo randomization to either the left-lateral decubitus or supine position. Then terminal ileal intubation will be attempted. Two points will be assessed: success in ileal intubation and time taken to intubate the ileum. If ileum is not intubated within 6 minutes, it will be considered as failed attempt.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time taken to intubate the ileum after cecal intubation [ Time Frame: 6 minutes after cecal intubation and randomisation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Depth of ileal intubation [ Time Frame: 2 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Influence of endoscopist experience on successful ileal intubation [ Time Frame: 6 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Abnormal ileal findings [ Time Frame: 2 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: left lateral
After confirmation of cecal intubation, patient will undergo randomization to either the left-lateral decubitus position. Then terminal ileal intubation will be attempted.
Procedure: Ileal intubation

After confirmation of cecal intubation, patient will undergo randomization to either the left-lateral decubitus or supine position. Then terminal ileal intubation will be attempted. Partial suction and scope manoeuvres for ileal intubation will be allowed.

Use of anti-peristalsis agents, use of biopsy forceps, as a guidewire or an ''anchor'' to facilitate the IC- valve intubation, and intubation in the retroflexed position will not be allowed.

Other Name: Ileoscopy
Active Comparator: supine
After confirmation of cecal intubation, patient will undergo randomization to the supine position. Then terminal ileal intubation will be attempted.
